I would love to take the 10-22 and get to making holy turtles but the neighbors would flip out on me. I also have a couple hundred goldfish that someone pitched in there and they are making a mess of the place. Those I just gut and toss back in the water for the catfish or toss in the bushes for the coons.

Then I get home one day and head right to the pond to find this:



I called CAL TIP and they sent a DFG officer out to the house. He and I figured that someone had poisoned them with gopher bait or something. I watched them all have seizures then flop over and drown in a matter of 30 minuets. I managed to save one of them but it wasn't gonna survive so the DFG guy said to dispatch it, I did. It was strange because the ducks were unaffected, just the geese.

Not a very good picture, but my 5 year old caught his first fish, a 14" rainbow. It was nicely filleted and made for some good dinner.



We went for catfish yesterday with no luck, but he is jazzed to go again.

I had my head turned as I was watching the other pole that was still in the water when he reeled this one in.

Caught some rainbows between myself and brother up north last weekend. It was fun fishing with him since he's just getting into outdoor sports.

Nearly 15lb catfish I caught yesterday on 6lb test! This one was the biggest of 4 that caught and by far the biggest freshwater fish I've ever caught!

I picked this guy off at 150 yards with my .30-06. I was aiming for the lungs when he turned suddenly and my shot went in towards his rear end. 180gr of Hornady BTSP dropped him. 9mm to the head finished him off.

No offense but you may have the smallest pig of the year award coming.

At least I win something. Yeah, I'm a new hunter and if I could do it over I would start with a guided hunt. It took a lot more money and time to find game on my own. Once I found the animals I didn't know how close I could get without spooking them. Once I took the shot the herd charged off up a steep hill. Since I didn't hit the heart or lungs I had to rush up to the wounded animal and dispatch him. Then I had to haul dead weight a mile up hill to where my truck was parked where I could gut it. It wasn't over, there was still a two hour drive home and when I got there I had to skin and butcher the carcass. Finally after all that work some of the meat was tainted since I shot him in the rear.

I'm hooked on hunting though. Being in the field facing down a group of wild boar was like nothing else I've ever done. Guided hunts are sounding pretty awesome now, especially in Africa where the game is a lot larger.

They are. The last little one I killed cooked up0 so tender the meat melted in my mouth.

The BIG question is where the hell did you find green grass like that in July around here?

FWIW - get a $20 gambrel and a game sack (or old bed sheets). Gut it on the spot, drag it to your truck, and then hoist it on the nearest tree to skin and sack it for the trip home. You can wait till you get home to butcher it, but the guts and skin need to be removed as soon as possible.

By the way - your rifle looks like a copy of mine... even the caliber is the same:


BTW - did someone say "small pigs"? Take a look at these two little guys:

I took the picture in my backyard once I got home. Didn't want to put pictures on the Internet that might show where I was since it's public land. Every Internet scouter in the state would be going there and exploiting my nine months of burning boot rubber. I got some good pictures and video for IRL people that show the herd.

The rifle is a Marlin X7. I spent $500 for it out the door then another $200 for the Buckmaster scope. It's a beginner rifle in a well known calibre. I got it specifically for hunting knowing that I could get a better rifle once I had more experience. I used hand loaded ammo too. Hornady 3072's with 53gr of Reloader 17 and magnum LRP.

Good job. Now since you've found where they can be you can go back and get a bigger one. Now get a pack frame and go in with that on your back so you don't have to drag it out. Just bone it out or quarter it.

I kind of figured it was your lawn.

God idea to play it close to the vest....... I think I may know where you went. If so, I've killed a pig in there too, and it took me 2 hours to drag it up to the truck. I sweat so much during the drag that my shirt looked like I fell in a lake. Definitely worth getting a frame pack and boning it out on the spot as lewddog21 suggests. My pig was "only" about 120 lbs or so, and I was damn glad at the end that I hadn't killed a bigger one!

I spend a lot of time hunting FHL, and we appear to be somewhat neighbors. If you are inclined to jump through the FHL hoops, I'm always looking for someone to split gas. I've been doing pretty well there of late, but haven't been back since Memorial Day.

Our rifles look very similar, but they are different. Mine is an old sporterized K98 Mauser that I fitted with a new 30-06 barrel and bedded into a CoreLite synthetic stock. I put a Leupold Var-x III 3-9x40 on it years ago, and swear by it.

Sounds like some of my first hunting trips lol. Just remember you and Bigbossman are in the very small percentage of California pig hunters who will ever take a public land pig. Its quite an accomplishment for any hunter. You guys have both done well.

Thanks for the compliment. I could regale you with tales of all the years I went out and saw nothing, but that would make for boring reading.

The first pig I ever took on public (DFG land) was on a quail opening day about 12 years ago. We stumbled across her resting under a tree, and it was literally me or the pig - didn't see her until she came charging out right at me, and I killed her inside of 10 yards with a snap shot right between the eyes. Scared the crap out of me, and we spent the next 2 hours dragging that little 120lb sow out to the truck. What a day that was - 6 quail, 2 rabbits, and one little pig.

Fast forward to last November or so, and I seem to falling all over them. I am under no illusion that the success is anything put dumb luck, but as long as I get to make the shot and take home pork I'm happy to ride the streak.

I'm suddenly starting to make a lot of new friends, too.

Thanks for the compliment. I could regale you with tales of all the years I went out and saw nothing, but that would make for boring reading.

The first pig I ever took on public (DFG land) was on a quail opening day about 12 years ago. We stumbled across her resting under a tree, and it was literally me or the pig - didn't see her until she came charging out right at me, and I killed her inside of 10 yards with a snap shot right between the eyes. Scared the crap out of me, and we spent the next 2 hours dragging that little 120lb sow out to the truck. What a day that was - 6 quail, 2 rabbits, and one little pig.

Fast forward to last November or so, and I seem to falling all over them. I am under no illusion that the success is anything put dumb luck, but as long as I get to make the shot and take home pork I'm happy to ride the streak.

I'm suddenly starting to make a lot of new friends, too.
curious what you were using for quail that took down a pig?

It's nice to see a fine young lady like yourself showing us guys how it's done. That's quite the bass you caught. If I got to see my daughter all grown up, I'd imagine she'd be just like you. Keep up the good fishing!

Fished out of Hamilton City with Valley Guide Service. Lots of hard work by guide and fisherman but we caught a great limit. I've got enough Salmon to last awhile.

Default Pig I shot with Bigboarstopper.

Got this sow a couple months ago. Weather was too hot for dogs so did a little spot and stalk. Lucked out and caught a couple small herds coming to water. The wind and terrain were perfect for a super close stalk. Crept over the top of a small dam to within 20 yards.

Encore carbine .25-06 shooting a 100 grain ttsx.
